The RefWorks platform has been upgraded and this Legacy version will be shut down in early 2023. Your last day of access will be 12/31/2022.

If you do nothing, your RefWorks (Legacy) account will be automatically converted to the current RefWorks platform during the first week of January. You will receive an email with login instructions when that happens.

To complete the transition sooner, you can easily transfer all the items you've saved in your account to the current RefWorks platform by using the orange Upgrade button.

Upgrading before the end of the year will give you time to troubleshoot in case anything goes wrong before you lose access to your old RefWorks (Legacy) account.

Documents created in legacy RefWorks can be upgraded to become compatible with the current version of RefWorks. You will need your RefWorks (Legacy) username and password for this process. Visit the RefWorks (Legacy) transitions page to learn more.

Please contact if you have questions about this transition. Thanks!
